PP and Citizens accuse the government of holding on to power and agree Budgets
The president of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, has exposed this Wednesday before the plenary of the Congress of Deputies the position of the Executive on the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia , in the heat of international critics by the death of the critical Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi .
The appearance of Sanchez responded to a request made weeks ago by Podemos and ERC, after the government revoked its decision to stop a sale of 400 pumps to the Gulf regime; Khashoggi’s death has made criticism worse.
In addition, the Board of Spokesmen of the Congress decided to take advantage of this plenary session so that the president could also report on the European Council on 17 and 18, a Council focused on the negotiations of the Brexit and on the management of migratory flows.
After the appearance of the President of the Government, the control session took place.
